Baptist minister pleads guilty to abuse; SNAP responds

We are grateful to this brave victim, her mother, and law enforcement for pursuing this predator. Kids are safer now that he’ll be locked up.


School staff ignored child sex abuse report; SNAP responds

We are stunned by the apparent callousness of these school staffers, and we are grateful to law enforcement officials for pursuing these charges. We hope prosecutors push hard for the maximum penalties for each of the defendants. If this teacher and these administrators are found guilty, we hope that education authorities consider penalizing the school itself for this egregious wrongdoing.
